SuiteSparse is a suite of sparse matrix algorithms, including: UMFPACK(multifrontal LU factorization), CHOLMOD(supernodal Cholesky, with CUDA acceleration), SPQR(multifrontal QR) and many other packages.
OSC timely installs new software versions on OSC systems, and periodically do coordinated software refresh (update the default versions to be more up-to-date and remove some versions that are quite out of date) on OSC systems. While we encourage everyone to use up-to-date software, the old defaults will still be available till the next software refresh, in case some users prefer to use the old defaults. The software refresh is usually made during the scheduled downtime, while we will send out notifications to all users ahead of time for any questions/suggestions/concerns.
OSC is refreshing the software stack on Oakley on September 15, 2015 (during the scheduled downtime); something we have not done since Oakley entered service in 2012. During the software refresh, some default versions are updated to be more up-to-date and some older versions are removed. Information about the old and new default versions, as well as all available versions of each software package will be included on the corresponding OSC software webpage. See https://www.osc.edu/supercomputing/software-list.
